Alhaji Yussif Captain, National Coordinator of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Zongo Caucus, says the Caucus is the most predominant platform seeking to improve Zongo communities in the country.
He dismissed claims by the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) that it will ensure better welfare of people living the Zongo communities when voted into power in the November general elections.
Alhaji Captain was speaking at the swearing-in of the Ablekuma Central branch and constituency coordinators of the Caucus in Accra.
The occasion was also used to launch the Caucus’ constituency campaign for the November elections which is aimed at galvanizing support for the party and President John Dramani Mahama.
According to him, due to the massive development projects across the country, especially in the Zongo communities by the Mahama-led administration, there is no doubt that the NDC would win more Zongo votes.
The National Coordinator said the President Mahama-led administration has brought development projects to the doorsteps of the people, of which the people in the Zongo communities are beneficiaries.
These development projects, he said, would attract Ghanaians to vote massively for the NDC come November 7.
On the Hajj Pilgrimage, Alhaji Captain said the Tamale and Kumasi Airports would help in airlifting prospective pilgrims to Accra to embark on the pilgrimage.
Alhaji Ishmael Bawa, National Executive Member of the Caucus, said President Mahama has shown great commitment towards the country’s development as well as excellent performance in providing long lasting solutions to major challenges confronting the country over the years, hence, the Caucus’s optimism of achieving 100 per cent votes for the party.
He said development projects such as construction of roads, schools, health facilities, drainage, provision of portable water among others, are the priorities of the NDC government.
Alhaji Bawa appealed to Ghanaians especially the Zongo youth, to apply for the Youth in Entrepreneur programme which according to him would help reduce unemployment in the country.
He also called on the youth to be innovative and come out with programmes that would create jobs for themselves.
Alhaji Mohammed Ashkah, Greater Accra Coordinator of the Caucus, said the recent tour by President Mahama across the country, has exposed the opposition NPP’s claims of incompetence on the part of President Mahama-led administration.
He said the tour revealed the hard work of NDC in its effort to improve the lives of the people as part of the Better Ghana Agenda.
He cited the Kwame Nkrumah Circle and Kasoa Interchange, Ho University, among others, as some of the hallmarks of the Better Ghana Agenda.
